While officers were investigating, two other people with gunshot wounds were located at hospitals, according to the release. Police later determined they were involved in the shooting. One of the men died, and the other is in stable condition.
The Sacramento County coroner identified one of the dead as Abram Tyrell Oates, 26, of Sacramento.
Police said the incident occurred between the four after the victims came out of a nightclub, although the motive behind the shooting is unknown, according to the release.
A man who identified himself as Tay Lee said he heard shots at the garage and came out of his apartment in the Hotel Berry building to see the scene. He came down to the liquor store on the corner of Eighth and L streets and said he saw a man picking up shotgun shells.
“They were not fighting, I would have heard it,” Lee said. “So I waited and went down there. People were running around chaotic so they could have kicked shells and stuff like that.”
The area around the incident — between Seventh and Eighth streets and J and L streets, as well as a light rail station — were closed for hours while detectives investigated.
As of 4:34 p.m., southbound Seventh Street was reopened and one lane of northbound Eighth Street was open from J Street to L Street, and by 6:43 p.m., investigators had cleared the area, according to the Sacramento Police Department.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have information about the shooting is urged to contact the department at 916-808-5471.
